I approached Ian Welsh of Boatshed Poole in August 2014 to sell my Rib. With the guidance offered from Ian Welsh and the Boatshed Poole Team I found the initial paperwork and required information very easy to compile. I was also given valuable assistance to establish an accurate asking price for the Rib. The viewings were conducted efficiently and I was always given comprehensive feedback from the comments made by the prospective buyers. I was given an accurate assessment on the best course of action to take concerning the adjustment of the price and the offers subsequently made by the prospective buyers. Eventually, the Rib sold in early May 2015. I was pleased with the figure it realised and the final documentation required by the buyer was compiled and completed efficiently by Jane Wilkins of Boatshed Poole. Overall, I found the sale of my Rib a very painless process due entirely to the efforts of the team at Boatshed Poole and I would thoroughly recommend other boat owners in the vicinity, who wish to sell their boats, to engage the services of the Boatshed Poole.

Just a note to thank you for the successful and commendably quick sale of my boat. I feared that she might be difficult to place, but you seem to have managed remarkably well! May the rest of your business be equally fortunate.

BOATSHED POOLE were helpful responsive and easy to deal with. I appreciated the guidance, support and positive approach to negotiation.

I would not hesitate to recommend Boatshed Poole when selling a boat. I found them efficient, professional & friendly. They gave a good presentation of my boat. The communication throughout was up to date, very good & informative.

- Ted | Boatshed Poole

Just a brief note to extend a big thank you for your assistance in my recent purchase of the Etap 30. Negotiations could have been a difficult due to the owner now living abroad but I was delighted with the way you were able to overcome the communication issues and effect a speedy and trouble free purchase on my behalf. I also appreciated your personable and professional manner and the help given by Jane in the office. If in the future I need a brokerage service I will certainly be knocking on the door of Boatshed Poole, once again my grateful thanks.

Jeanneau Leader 705 Purchase As a relative newbie to boating, Ian at Boatshed Poole helped simplify every step of my purchase, helping to arrange basics such as a survey & sea trial, but also going the extra mile by filling with fuel for my trip home and arranging for a local fisherman to guide me out of a potentially hazardous marina on an early tide. Always quick to reply to calls & mails and having a 'can do' attitude, I would have no hesitation in recommending.

I have just purchased a superb fast fishing boat, a Seafox 256 using Boatshed Poole, the service of Jane and Ian was very good, not just arranging viewings but handling the organisation of a survey and all the financial transaction. The details of the boat advertised on line were very accurate and the photographs did not portray anything but the facts. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable from start to finish, I would not hesitate to use or recommend Boatshed Poole again. Alex, Chef and now catching my own fish

In October 2014 I contacted BoatShedPoole regarding a Cornish Crabber Yawl, they had for sale on their site. I rapidly arranged a viewing of the boat with Ian Welsh. He was very helpful and thoroughly professional. Regarding a couple of my questions he did not know the answers to he quickly found out the answers. Jane Wilkins has also been a point of email contact, she too has been very helpful throughout the process. Both Jane and Ian were easy to contact and responded very quickly. I seem to recall I made an offer on the same day as viewing the boat. From my point of view an excellent price was agreed with the vendor, negotiated by Ian, within a short space of time. The sale was subject to survey. All the arrangements for the surveyor were handled efficiently. Ian negotiated a reduction in the price to my satisfaction, based on the survey. He then was very helpful in advising and supporting me to arrange the stepping of the masts, securing her for transport to North Devon etc. I would thoroughly recommend BoatShedPoole to other people looking to buy a boat.

Hi Ian. Just a note to convey my thanks for completing the sale of "Osprey of Down" The Nimbus 380 Commander. As you know I had it with Offshore Powerboats for some time without much success. Thank you for your diligence, patience and professionalism during the process and be assured that I will recommend Boatshed poole to any of my friends who are in the market to either buy or sell. Once again. My sincere thanks

- Hubert | Boatshed Poole

Hi Anthony, Thank you so much for your prompt and so efficient service. I cannot believe that you sold my boat within a week. Amazing.

- Ian | Boatshed Lymington

Anthony and Ian. Thank you so much for your help and advice which resulted in a successful and painless sale of Dasher. With best wishes.

- David | Boatshed Lymington

I just wished to take a few moments to be able to thank your team in its professional way that it has handled the sale of my boat. Anthony was extremely hands on, being generous with his time and offers to buy coffee. All in all what matters is that I sold my boat for the amount that I wanted, in which the Boatshed provided a service that I required and sold my boat for the price that I wanted. Anyone could not want more from a service, and one that I would definitely use in the future. Thanks again

- Nick | Boatshed Lymington

Billy, thank you very much. We have been immensely impressed by the service you have provided and I would whole-heartedly recommend you to any other potential seller or purchaser. I hope not to be in the market for selling in the near future but if we ever are, I will certainly be looking you up.

- Tom, Carter 33 Vendor (Jan 2021) | Boatshed Plymouth

“A helpful, friendly and knowledgeable team at Boatshed Portsmouth. Despite all the challenges of COVID, lockdown and Christmas! Sam and her team were able to help arrange a smooth, safe and extremely speedy process. From first viewing to handover in under 4 weeks! Quite remarkable when having to contend with Christmas, New Year and Lockdown too ! “

Btw the videos and pics are great on the website, so easy to check everything about the yacht before purchasing it.

Samantha from Boatshed Portsmouth led me through all the processes to sell my boat quickly, was extremely helpful and worked really hard during a difficult time to achieve a good price

- Paul, W. Gosport Premier Marina | Boatshed Portsmouth

We bought our boat through Boatshed Portsmouth and were very happy with the service we received so when we decided to sell the boat, we had no hesitation in using them again. Samantha talked us through both processes every step of the way and always responded quickly to any questions we had. She was always contactable, open, honest and a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending Boatshed and would certainly use them again. Thanks for all your help and we wish you a happy New Year.

- Pip and Kev Wichman. Gosport Premier Marina | Boatshed Portsmouth

I have just bought my yacht through Boatshed Portsmouth. Despite the ongoing restrictions of COVID, Sam made it an absolute pleasure to do business keeping me updated and informed throughout the process by phone and email. No question was too difficult and she dealt with all aspects from the owner, marina and surveyor through to arranging lift out for inspection. Given difficulty travelling and distance this made sure the whole experience went seamlessly. Definitely 5 stars! I would strongly recommend the excellent service.

- Chris | Boatshed Portsmouth

Cheerful, positive, helpful, knowledgeable and pragmatic - what more could someone want from a yacht broker. Thanks for your help!

- Ben, RNSA | Boatshed Portsmouth

I also want to give a massive thank you to Mike, he has been a wealth of information and such a big help for a first time buyer.
